“It’s better in the dark”
Have you ever heard of the show Dating in the Dark? It was a reality show that aired in 2010 about strangers meeting in a pitch-black room and literally going on a blind date. Not only did participants not have a clue what their date looked like, but the experience was meant to encourage people to form bonds based on personality, not looks.
Luckily, my next date night suggestion does not force you to have dinner with a complete stranger, but instead offers you the chance to try out this cool experience with your significant other instead. It’s called O.Noir!
What is O.Noir?
With locations in LA, New York, Montreal and now Toronto, O.Noir is a completely unique dining experience. Guests have dinner in the dark and experience what it’s like to have a meal without their sight!
How did this idea come to be, you may ask?
“This socially conscious concept sprang from Jorge Spielmann, a blind pastor in Zurich who used to blindfold his dinner guests at his home so they could share his eating experience.” (O.Noir)
